The 20th Annual Conference of QDDPs
"Everyday Wellbeing"
Certification Program
The QDDP Certification Program provides advanced training
and knowledge acquisition for individuals working with persons
with developmental and intellectual disabilities. The signature
credential is based on the values of person-centered planning,
self determination, positive behavior support, family support,
individual responsibility, and the prevention of abuse and neglect.
NAQ is now accepting applications for the self-paced program.
QDDP/QIDP Qualifications
In talking to people from across the country, we find that generally
it is a bachelor's degree in a human services related field and at
least one year of experience working directly with people with
developmental disabilities. The qualifications are subject to
state by state interpretation and come from the Federal ICF/ID

Federal Guidelines
